Sanya V. Nagato is WIN!

Sora no Woto’s been pretty interesting so far. But the one thing I hadn’t been able to do was glom onto one character.

Winter 2010 First Impressions: Dance in the Vampire Bund

I was a little worried that Shinbo would be a little too… well… Shinbo in directing Dance in the Vampire Bund. But thankfully the episode was mostly free from the various Shinbo-isms, like the random real-life photos and massive blocks of text. On the other hand, the whole talk show routine wasn’t terribly interesting. I didn’t think it was particularly bad either, it just seemed mostly irrelevant to the eventual show. They could’ve condensed all that into a couple minutes and revealed Mina Tepes and the vampires. For a 12-episode show, it seems like an odd waste of an episode. But Vampire Bund isn’t alone. In fact, it’s just one of the many winter shows that had oddly poor starts. Still, there was enough there to interest me. And hopefully things get back on track next episode.
